Abstract:In an 11-year study of the population ecology of the European corn borer (Pyrausta nubilalis(Hbn.)) in southern Minnesota, a correlation has been found between the pattern of the seasonal temperature and the proportion of the first-generation mature larvae which pupated during the summer. This correlation may be useful in predicting the potential of the second-generation borer infestation.
